I specialized in English lit. over professional writing, a deliberate choice in part motivated by a conviction that I would hate technical writing. And yet my first job out of college was working as an editorial assistant for a media company’s broadcast technology imprint.
I was employed by NewBay Media, acquired by Future plc in 2018, for more than 7 years, working on several titles and projects within the B2B group.
After that, I had a stint working for a med-tech company as a technical writer; I learned a lot in a brief time and have been able to leverage that knowledge into my personal and professional lives.
I now work as a senior editor manager for the National Association of Broadcasters. My project: NAB Amplify.
